Landmine explosion kills three in Hudaydah on November 19; further similar incidents expected in the medium term

TIMEFRAME expected from 20/11/2020, 12h00 until 22/11/2020, 11h59 (Asia/Aden). COUNTRY/REGION Hodeidah


At least three civilians were killed on Thursday, November 19, after a landmine exploded in Hudaydah. The landmine is believed to have been planted by Houthi rebels when they controlled the area. Separately, media sources report that Houthi rebels fired four rockets at a residential block in south Hudaydah on Thursday; there have been no immediate reports of damage or injuries.

Further attacks are possible in the area in the near term.


Yemen is engaged in a complex and deadly conflict, ongoing since Houthi rebels entered a civil war with the Yemeni government, supported by a Saudi-led coalition, in 2015. The Saudi-led coalition has carried out thousands of airstrikes in Yemen since its intervention began. Hundreds of Yemeni civilians have been killed in the strikes, which have hit schools, hospitals, and markets, in addition to Houthi militant positions and personnel. In total, more than 10,000 Yemenis have died in the fighting and some 3 million have been displaced.


Due to poor security conditions, many Western governments strongly advise their citizens against all travel to Yemen. Travel to the country should only be considered with proper security protocols in place. Professional security advice and support should be sought prior to travel.
